WIOA Resource Center
DirectCourse brings you a variety of tools to understand the Workforce Innovation Act
On July 22, 2014, President Obama signed into law the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), a reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act and Rehabilitation Act. For over a decade, Congress has been debating this reauthorization, which is now effective through 2020.
The President stated that the WIOA “will help workers, including workers with disabilities, access employment, education, job-driven training, and support services that give them the chance to advance their careers and secure the good jobs of the future.” But what exactly does this legislation do?
